The Knox County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s assistance in identifying a black female who has robbed four businesses in Knox County since last month, as well as a person of interest in one of those. The first robbery occurred on March 27th at Rocky Top Market, located at 10518 Kingston Pike. The second occurred on April 6th at Subway, located at 7654 Oak Ridge Highway. The third took place on April 10th at Rocky Top Market, located at 10518 Kingston Pike. The fourth occurred at Waffle House, located at 5416 Asheville Highway. In each robbery, the suspect entered the business, displayed a semi-automatic handgun, demanded money, and fled on foot.
The suspect is described as a black female, approximately 20-30-years old, 110-130 pounds, 5’8”-5’10”, with a thin build.
The accompanying photos include one set of the suspect, wearing what appears to be a black and white striped hoodie. The other set shows the person of interest, pictured inside the Waffle House as a customer, wearing what appears to be a grey and black hooded jacket over dark clothing.
The matter is being investigated by KCSO’s Major Crimes Unit and the Knoxville Police Department’s Violent Crimes Unit. Anyone with information is asked to contact KCSO’s Major Crimes Unit at (865) 215-2243.
